around the world on screen online international news and comment live from moscow breaking news this hour the egyptian opposition says two people have died in clashes between supporters and opponents of the president demonstrators have thrown . official residence where. joins me now live from cairo. disturbing reports about this surge in violence we're hearing of deaths and injuries. from what you can see. well those seem to really reminiscent of. nearly two years ago just before the overthrow of hosni mubarak here in there in egypt it's really not too much to say that it's absolute time to learn a new one for its analysis of the logs there was a large group called mohamed morsi firsthand stood. outside the walls of the
presidential palace all through an enormous contrition rally yesterday evening others with the vermin and laugh midway through the day a lot strewn all through muhammad mostly muslim brotherhood supporters turned up and proceed to attack the the council sends cows and says all told down the tents unattractive people that there was a running battle the opposition which has since going is because they gods but eventually the number has all the wrong mohamed morsi for justice twelve there is definitely trends of thousands of people there for a moment was the intention plea outnumbers the and see moment was to protest and push them violent along the streets leading to the presidential palace an absolute hail of stones and shoot that is going along with cultural columns a lot of the sides always be chancing their own chants and ripping up the pavement to provide
themselves with ammunition really quite terrifying scenes with those at the front of each of those very tense a many people being brought back with streaming flowers from the head limping up to being hit with. various signs and a number of fronts to being set on fire the emergency services the halt for the all downhill and you know with the p.c. the police seem to have stayed entirely out of the entire affair and just let the two sides get on with it really quite disturbing. the ministers of egypt's revolution to use. so many sign this stage as a political solution to this crisis could be possible. well though both sides talk of wanting a reasonable debate but it seems that's about as far as it goes politically both sides really fairly entrenched now on the opposition side becomes reached for judges. not all of them but many of them say they don't want to
help in a future referendum. which would be only the country's new draft constitution which all the opposition say is true in the midst and doesn't provide any all right for the women in egypt for minority groups like all six christians and all the other sides of the muslim brotherhood and the constituent assembly dominated by the muslim brotherhood they want the constitution constitutional referendum to go ahead because they think that they can think they can win it and get that constitution into effect of course going back just over a week or so the regional reason for all this was nominal sequence against all. the power not to be challenged and even students not to be challenged by any will for a team the course included which people in the position that it's necessary been calling him a new flare over the last. blow so people shouting. very angrily about that subject
the ration of his they will not receive it they want all even they want him to stand down he wasn't followed want to stay in and watch the poster should go through absolute political deadlock and as we see it is resulted in very serious violence tom thanks a lot for that tom bowman line from near the presidential palace in current weather i spoke to blogger and journalist while afghan who said the situation in car is likely to get even worse. than he was tried and. what i can see is not there being away using. gun. blanks. what sounded like why there is no present police or military at all despite what. we can hear. president making these. remaining. silent. but
i even know the ones in place when the. muslim brotherhood protesters attacked so i don't see special response that is adequate to us happening right now. well we're following the developments in egypt on air and online for the latest updates who do want to talk common check out our twitter feeds. britain is facing at least five more years of history to the country's finance minister so there's no miracle cure for the country's economy the highly anticipated autumn statement by george osborne brought little relief for a public already angered by government cuts off the sort of first reports from london where everyone now madly picking their way through the facts and figures and while was there a lot of figures one thing was very very clear and that is that the u.k. is set to face even more austerity you know what those figures say this was that the u.k. economy is going to shrink by not point one percent by the end is twenty twelve now
it sounds like a small amount but of course no sign of that all important in fact what we're seeing is that borrowing has gone up we think that the debt has risen and fallen and most crucially i think is probably the fact that the government have missed the reduction target so we're now facing an extended austerity program this game say it's right the way to twenty eighteenth's a pretty gloomy outlook and this is what we were a. bit of course that's going to really not be what millions of families all across the again to one thing here and because this is really going to bring in real terms now to speak to us more about this horse and statement by the chinese that today i'm joined by a labor m.p. and the public i said a public health minister thank you for joining us so the british economy is slowly healing according to chancellor george osborne what was your reaction to well i thought that was a very silly statement the truth is every prophecy every target of.
he has failed he has not met his targets he's not going to deal with the deficit he said the road growth will grow. and also there's going to be a huge car made in benefits pavement to some of the poorest people in the country are going to suffer. as a result of this and there's no end to this all started from now on it's. just one percent for the benefit of the world and that's less than inflation you know that's really going to hit a huge number of. forty seven billion pounds from the benefits we're talking about farmers are really on the bread line anyway even losing twenty pounds a week is a big hit i mean it's a very cold day outside and it's a very cold prospects for britain's poor because they are going to the brunt of the
austerity caused by britons by because of all school doesn't know what he's doing thank you very much for joining us also say there is a lot of cause for concern as he said there were impatience in the thing is one thing cutting through all those statistics and that's the way it is going to be said to have to brace itself they even took us in the future even more starting. the u.s. is preparing to send patriot missiles to turkey after nato approved the plan to defend itself against potential missile attacks from inside syria and america is also pressuring iraq to search syria bound planes for weapons even demanding grounds passing jets baghdad isn't enthusiastic as port not reports. as the syrian government struggles to stay in power fighting against rebels backed by the west america is also attempting to suffocate the alleged weapons flying into damascus washington accuses iran of being the key arms supplier to assad forces and to stop the transfer the u.s.
is now reportedly demanding that baghdad inspect planes flying from iran over its airspace into syria and the american government for sure. many other countries this is just more. amazing thing is american government is saying that they can control flights over countries in force. force and. by doing so the u.s. has created something of a paradox forcing iraq to prevent iran from dealing with syria by bringing up this issue of so-called weapons supplied to just another way to pressure the baghdad regime united states feel that it invested blood and treasure in terms of overthrowing saddam hussein that it has the right if not the obligation in order to intervene with the back their regime obviously. objects to this kind of approach
and i daresay that the iraqi people object to that approach as well the names u.s. officials have complained that baghdad is not doing enough to cooperate with washington's demands since september iraq has only managed to allegedly inspect two iranian planes baghdad does not have an air force and grounding planes is. having too costly as they must be refueled after each check recently iraq made it clear that it is not willing to march to the beat of america's drum in an interview with the new york times iraq's minister of transportation said quote we are an independent country and our stance is clear we will search whichever plane we want whenever we want we will not take orders and i think they're expecting their one else to take our most countries doing the sanctions early treatment of the american government so. the iraq don't feel the same one.
nearly one decade after saddam hussein was ousted by the u.s. led invasion into iraq washington is pressuring a new cover of the very same country to help the leader of a different war as america continues supporting syria's opposition in part by police in iran iraq for its all to march in lockstep with borders has created something of a middle east trying the white house may not be able to navigate. not artsy. turkish troops and helicopters of the kurdish area near the border with syria killing thirteen suspected militants the crisis in syria is being seen as a chance for kurdish aspirations for independence and statehood and whether the turks are actually shooting themselves in the foot by supporting the syrian uprising that's the subject for debate in the lake has crossed toll that's coming up later this hour more news from me then after a short break this is. wealthy

news this hour deadly violence near the presidential palace in egypt the opposition says two people are being killed in clashes between supporters and opponents of the president we can now talk again two artes tomball who's right there in so tell me what is going on near the palace now any sign of the clashes calming down. no they're not outside the palace where we are at the moment muslim brotherhood supporters are currently in control of this ground as it were an enormous crowd of theirs has swept around the side of the palace walls and they have effectively
claimed it for mahmoud morsy who they support earlier on that was not the case there had been a small protest camp outside the walls of morphy's palace manned by anti homage protesters they were the remnants of a large protest probably similar size to this yesterday evening and they were chanting against mohammed morsi but today the last of their supporters who had vowed that they were going to camp out were chased out of their account by the by the muslim brotherhood and pro morsi supporters in a running battle that has escalated as more protesters arrive from both sides in the end both the sheer weight of numbers of mohamed morsy supporters pushed the opposition protesters back into some of the nearby streets where a ferocious battle isn't stewing involving crowds throwing stones over
a over a short distance between the two crowds an absolute hail of stones flying between the two sides there also molotov cocktails between the two sides both sides chanting and busily tearing up the pavements to provide them. selves with more ammunition we arrived to see absolute scene of pandemonium some of the the shop fronts nearby had been set on fire the the nearby filmmakers who have been filming on top of some cars were just trying to drive the cars through the crowds to get out as fast as they could because they hadn't been able to respond before the violence had swept over them as well the first police car we've just seen a few minutes ago passed by we're not quite sure whether that was to try and break things up until then for hours now there has been absolutely no police involvement at all this situation has really deteriorated quite fast injuries streaming back on both sides we've had in other injuries from the flying stones and this is this
political divisions that are written large and written violently on the streets of cairo and tom despite this surge of violence is there any sign a political solution to the crisis could be possible. well bill both sides still talking many people on both sides of one thing a reasonable dialogue but it seems that this far as it goes really now both sides very firmly entrenched in the corridors of power as well egypt's top judges not all of them but many of them firmly opposed not only to morsi as decoration the other week granting himself power above all oversight including including from the judges themselves and their supporters but also on the muslim brotherhood side and the constituent assembly which is green. is dominated by the muslim brotherhood as has been trying to draw up egypt's new draft constitution and for stuck through and
along overnight session recently to hasty say the opposition to islamist and it doesn't provide enough rights for egypt's minorities and women in egypt as well. the muslim brotherhood contends that's not the case this referendum on it must be put to the people must go ahead the opposition says absolutely not it should never have got this power in the first place we don't know without referendum will go ahead especially with fighting like this it was a constitutional crisis and it is still but this is the fear of people being written on the streets but those political divisions are going to go much deeper and this violence could become worse tom thanks a lot tom bottom line from near the presidential palace in. twenty minutes past the russian capital some other international news in brief now typhoon bopha which is currently battering the philippines has claimed more than

a un resolution calling on it to open up its nuclear facilities for inspection as a meaningless and mechanical vote the general assembly overwhelmingly back to proposal calling on israel to join the nuclear nonproliferation treaty israel has never officially. which it possesses atomic weapons although if you doubt it's fully armed as all trees reports it's a story that has all the ingredients and intrusion of a hollywood blockbuster nucleus snagging a hollywood producer and israeli prime minister it's a story that here in tel aviv the authorities don't want to talk about but two israeli americans have put pen to paper it's probably be. best kept secret in the world on center stage is on on mulch and a hollywood producer and israeli undercover agent who is alleged to have smuggled nuclear triggers from the united states into israel a california engineer which had kelly smith says he was recruited by most in the early seventy's smith was later convicted in the united states of running an
american front company to help. the story first surface to be i fall is released at the end of last year and enjoys of goldman's tell all book confidential this was a very limited operation in fact when the outcome which is the hebrew acronym for science liaison bureau with the nablus even the third was unaware of its existence and only it was basically created behind the back of this will security establishment only of this year the f.b.i. released these documents from a seven year investigation which began in one thousand nine hundred five they show how a network of front companies connected to these weighty defense ministry smuggled nuclear triggers out of the united states to israel what's apparent in the documents is that the israeli ministry of defense would place an order for prohibited items with an israeli company called he light trading. he light trading is where benjamin netanyahu worked and would meet with richard kelly smith. when he visited israel then they would transfer the order to an organization called milko
in california to fulfill the order violating export control act and shipping the triggers out of the united states they called it the operation project pinto all the allegations are based on smith's testimony and many have been surprised by the detail if you take a look at the documents netanyahu is definitely mentioned in the document and that's what surprised us because typically. you get two types of sensors of this type of document sometimes a block off an entire page sometimes of just block off a name in this case netanyahu is name is clearly stated in the documents in the documents it is alleged netanyahu asked the hollywood producer not to discuss the matter publicly in a written response to r.t. these really foreign ministry denied all allegations on the other side of the story aside from the leaked documents washington to is keeping quiet is really new
capabilities of some of the most guarded secrets the u.s. government holds formal secrets some would argue then information it has about iran but for the foreseeable future the book on israel's nuclear secrets is closed. r.t. israel. r.t. live here in moscow about more news from thirty five minutes from now in the meantime peter lavelle's crosstalk. emission free cretaceous and free transport charges free from ajman free risk free studio time free. download free broadcast quality video for your media projects and free media and on
